playing in the water video
tired little hiker had such a great time playing in the water on this hike! thanks to ang, the pictures tell the story 🙂 he hiked pretty far on the steep trail back up. with his little hiking boots on, he’s really stable outside. he hikes, then hitches a ride when he’s tired. thanks for the photojournalism again, ang! great day!
it was GORGEOUS here this weekend! it was about 70 yesterday and felt like 80 today, no clouds…so we had a little wanderlust and went up to Hurricane Ridge for some snow play yesterday then out to Ft. Flagler today to check out the camping options. Great views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Whidbey, Port Townsend, the Cascades and Olympics. Here is a movie of what little time we spent at home. 15 months

i went down to base today so i could swap cars and get my zippy little GTI back. sam and i have a couple road trips in mind while dave’s at sea… so my friend christine helped me swap the car seat into the GTI, which has LATCH and is supposed to be really easy. well that’s if you’ve done it before OR read the manual.
[photopress:IMGP6465.JPG,thumb,alignleft]sammy got to hike on the trail today in new hiking shoes from tita bear – tommy hilfiger trail shoes! he really liked how he could grip the boulders and that the rocks didn’t hurt his feet like they did with the little leather slip-ons. we had a great day – 60 degrees, sunny and great views…good company, too! here is a movie of lunchtime at the top…hiking shoes
[photopress:Image012.jpg,thumb,alignright] here’s a good one of him smiling at the turn-around point halfway through our run. we usually walk, hand in hand, down this shady lane to let his legs stretch a bit before we head back.
[photopress:IMGP6458.JPG,thumb,thumb]our morning started early with mass (we arrived early only to wait 30 min for a 2 hr mass to start!), then had brunch with mom and ang, who hosted us with a wonderful spread of gourmet cheeses, fresh baked bread, mimosas, smoked salmon…it was lovely. sam took a nap before coming down for his repast, after some coaxing from me (he’s in travel training in prep for a trip back east). it was a great day spent with loved ones. sam even hunted for Easter eggs that Ang’s mom had sent. he was especially delighted with opening them up to find strange toys inside 🙂 more photos in the album…
[photopress:Image007.jpg,thumb,pp_image]sammy was a party boy again tonight – we went to the yacht club for a steak dinner as guests of mom and pete. another couple brought their grandkids, two really sweet girls, one of whom sammy took quite a liking to!
sam has been doing some funny things since daddy left for sea a few days ago…he’s responding to “say ‘mama'” and “say ‘dada'”! so exciting 🙂 he’s also having fun with his froggie squeak toy…froggie has…
[photopress:Image005.jpg,full,pp_image] another great day on green mt! it was supposed to be sunny, but ended up being pretty chilly. as you can see, it didn’t dampen our spirits! thanks for a great day, ladies!
[photopress:IMGP6425_1.JPG,full,pp_image]I’m deep into the world of blogging now. i’ve created a new directory on my server, installed a plug-in and customized its settings. here we go – trying to display some images for you! which i know is what you really want, anyway, not my blogging 🙂
We think we put this cookbook in long-term storage up in WA…bummer! This was a great recipe book. But I stumbled across this photograph of a beer-battered fish recipe…
This is a link to an absolutely hilarious video I had trouble finding because it was 6 months before my conversion to this blog engine. Caffrey is doing a high-five and Sam is watching and just about ready to fall out of his chair laughing! Mary – thank you for reminding us of this! http://www.kampkrug.com/video/Sams%20laugh.wmv
